October 14 dinner: Stir fry

Filed under: Recipes, Recipes by me — Tags: , , , , — anotheryarn @ 11:23 pm

Just a simple stir-fry, we didn’t have any tofu so we just left it out and I made brown rice for the whole grain bulk.  Tofu (or chicken if you eat meat) would be a good addition of course.  Instead of our usual sauce ( a mix of soy sauce, water, ginger, garlic, etc) I used the sauce from a broccoli stir-fry recipe in The New Best Recipe.

Stir fry Veggies

  • 1-2 T canola oil
  • 6 leaves napa cabbage
  • 3 small carrots
  • small head broccoli (or 1/2 large head)
  • 1/3 red bell pepper
  • 1 bunch green onions

Hot and Sour Sauce from The New Best Recipe

  • 3 T cider vinegar
  • 1 T water (instead of chicken broth)
  • 1 T soy sauce
  • 2 t sugar
  • 2 t minced ginger
  • 1 T minced jalapeno
Try to cut your veggies into similar, bite sized pieces, shred the leafy parts of the cabbage into short ribbons.  Keep the thicker stem part of the cabbage separate from the thinner leafy parts.  Heat a big skillet and add the oil.  When it is nice and hot add the cabbage stems and carrots and broccoli.  After a few minutes (the veggies should be about halfway done) add the bell pepper and green onions.  Finally add the leafy parts of the cabbage and let it get wilty. Meanwhile mix the vinegar, water, soy sauce and sugar in a cup or bowl until the sugar is dissolved.  When the veggies are done (crispy-tender and bright) push them to the outer edges of the pan so that you have a small open spot on the skillet and add a teaspoon of oil, the ginger and jalapeno.  Stir these together until fragrant and then stir everything together.  Pour the sauce over everything and let it get hot.
